Upcycled-Joy – Mission Statement


The premise of this blog is to share stories of how things are created. The stories they have to tell. And naturally stories about life, living and encouragement.

I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and try new things. I’ll be here to help you along the way. When teaching I discovered the one thing that holds us back, is not knowing what to do when we get stuck or make a mistake. I hope you will frequent this blog as more stories are added along with free projects with lots of encouragement.

Many years ago I fell in love with creating things. It didn’t matter if I was sewing, painting, making baskets, re-arranging rooms or cooking in the kitchen.

All of these things are peaceful and relaxing to me – Where I find my “Happy Place”.

This blog is dedicated to the rewarding experiences I plan to share with you in hopes to encourage you to find and enjoy similar moments of peace, serenity and creativity.
